Go into a bush bar and try and disguise your pommy accent so that the Neanderthal aussies at the bar do not suss you ar a Pom,
Especially the day we took back the ashes.

Other Poms whisper and look around to see if anyone's listening when they confess they'd rather live back in the UK.

So true

You enter any place frequented predominantly by Aussies and you know that the moment you speak "Pom Alert!" sirens will begin sounding off in every Aussie's head - irresitably compelling them to remind you in some way that you are a Pom. Even the born-agains hear gentle ting ting tingings.

In public toilets there's a large gap between the door frame and the actual door

coupled with a yellow 'sharps' pot for those wishing to shoot up and fairly often a dunny frog (green tree frog).

I don't get the half flush/full flush buttons either - the half one seems to put in a little bit of water but take nothing away....
